> The archaeological excavation of wooden waggonway remains at Lambton D
> Pit, Sunderland
> by Ian Ayris, John Nolan and Andrew Durkin
> The timber waggonway tracks at the site of the former Lambton or
> Bournmoor D Pit at Fencehouses, near Sunderland are the best preserved
> and most substantial early wooden railway remains yet to be uncovered
> in this country. The archaeological excavation of the site exposed
> over 150 metres of in situ timber, allowing an in-depth analysis of
> the construction of wooden railways, and the study of individual
> features, including points and check rails. The related discovery of a
> brick rail-head platform and the masonry and brick remains of a
> colliery building also allowed the waggonway complex to be placed
> within its functional context. Observations from a number of leading
> figures in the research of early coal transport in the Great Northern
> Coalfield have been combined with the archaeological record of this
> highly significant site to provide a detailed description of the
> wooden waggonway and its relationship to the late 18th and early 19th
> century colliery.
